Since its introduction in 1998, the Pendulum OCL-2 Compressor/Limiter has become a modern classic. In fact, the OCL-2 changed the way users think about opto compression! Our custom opto cell provides fast, invisible compression without the artifacts and sluggish response inherent in vintage designs.
Since its introduction in 1998, the Pendulum OCL-2 Compressor/Limiter has become a modern classic. In fact, the OCL-2 changed the way users think about opto compression! Our custom opto cell provides fast, invisible compression without the artifacts and sluggish response inherent in vintage designs. The NEW Pendulum OCL-500 has the same compression circuit as the OCL-2, but uses a transformerless class A solid-state gain makeup circuit in place of the tube stage. The result is clean, transparent compression that can be used to shape the dynamics of any source while preserving its tone. Like the OCL-2, the OCL-500 has a wide variety of time constants and dynamic control to optimize the compression characteristics, including a sidechain hi-pass filter. Features OCL-2 compression profile with our proprietary opto cell Six time constants with fast, rms, multi-slope and average Class A solid - state (no tubes) Sidechain hi-pass filter Single-space 500 series rack format OCL-500 Specifications Format: API® 500 series standard, fully compatible Input Impedance: 20K-ohm, balanced Output Impedance: less than 50 ohm Max. Output Level: +27dBu, balanced Threshold: off to 20dB of gain reduction at +4dBu Ratio: 1.5:1 to 15: 1, soft knee Output: Off to +20dB of makeup gain Max. Gain Reduction: 27 dB Frequency Response: +/- 1 dB from 10Hz to 95kHz Noise Level: better than 78dB below +4dBu, 0-30kHz Total Harmonic Distortion: less than 0.01% with no compression
